The scene after South Forsyth girls’ basketball’s 62-39 victory over South Gwinnett on Friday in the first round of the state Class AAAAAA tournament was far different than a year ago. The buzzer sounded, and the Lady War Eagles went through their post-game routine without excessive enthusiasm. Just handshakes, a quick locker room speech from Lady War Eagles coach Keith Gravitt and a photo against the upper-level railing behind a black sign with pink and white letters that read, “Sweet 16.”
